After the project instructor has implemented all of the feedback from their DataCamp representative, as described in the project creation process, DataCamp marks the project live, the project enters the soft launch phase, and it will appear on datacamp.com/projects where students can take it.
Soft launch means we've marked it live but haven't broadcast it out yet via social or email. We'll wait for a few dozen completions, complete with student feedback and ratings, which we'll decide to act upon if necessary. This feedback will be posted by your DataCamp representative in your GitHub repository periodically and the instructor is responsible for making the fixes.
Once your project has an average rating of 4.3 with >= 25 ratings, your project will hard launch, which means we will market it via email, social media, etc. You will be paid your prepayment upon hard launch.
